Science Tutor Nottingham | A-Level Chemistry Tutor Derby

Methodology

I was a very successful Head of Department and since retirement I have been giving private tuition. I am familiar with all the major syllabi including Edexcel, OCR and AQA.
The feedback from students I have taught has always been great .

- Which subject(s) do you teach?

I teach A Level Chemistry and GCSE Science.

- Tell me about your qualifications.

Chemistry Degree. A.R.I.C. Teaching certificate

- How much do you charge?

£24 an hour for A level, £24 an hour for GCSE. I charge a small amount extra if I have to travel. I usually do 2 hour sessions with a break half way if necessary but there is no fixed timetable so sessions can be when they are required. I also cover a huge amount of ground quickly but with full understanding of the concepts.

- Where do you teach?

At home or students' homes. Derby, Nottingham, Mansfield, Chesterfield areas.

- When are you available?

Daytime and evenings.

- Which ages and levels do you teach?

GCSE and A-Level (10 years upwards including adults)

- Which qualifications do you prepare your students for?

Anything up to A level. For instance I have taught basic Physics to a deep sea diver who had to pass some technical exams.

- Describe your arrangements for online tutoring.

No online tutoring

- Do you have a personal message for students?

I was a very successful Head of Department and since retirement I have been giving private tuition. I am familiar with all the major syllabi including Edexcel, OCR and AQA. I like to make sessions relaxed, interesting and enjoyable but challenging. Exam. technique is always strongly emphasized.

Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

30 years teaching. 12 years successful tutoring

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

Registered in 2017

- Where and with whom did you train?

Derby University, Salford University. Nottingham Teaching College (now a University)

- Tell me about some of your current students.

One of my past students at the Nottingham High School for Girls obtained 100% in her A Level final exam. The first student at the High School to achieve this.
One of my students from Duffield also obtained 100% in his final examination. I have also had other students at GCSE and AS level obtaining 100%.
I usually am given 5/5 for my tutoring.

In only a few lessons Alan got my son up from a 'B' grade to an A*and my son said it didn't even feel like hard work! Alan explains things in a way that makes it very easy to understand and he knows what the examiners are looking for.

Alan tutored my daughter in science and did a fantastic job. She had developed epilepsy during year 10 and this really affected her learning and memory. As a result of Alan's help she achieved 100% in core science and 98% in additional science.He is very reliable and trustworthy and we are so pleased we found him. I would recommend Alan without reservation. 5/5
